3 out of 5 stars Well...

I dropped a rope on Lost World and decided to go up this crack as a warm up. I used the left wall a couple times - it's pretty contrived to ignore it in this case. But yeah, kind of weird that it's not an actual route of its own. It's not bad.

3 out of 5 stars Thought this was Herbarium

Climbed this "Variation" thinkning it was the route in the guide book. A bit run out at the top. 3/4 up the route there's not much feet so I struggled a bit to place gear.

3 out of 5 stars Fun

I am surprised this is a "variation" and not a route in its own right. It is better than many other routes at Pinnacle, and more spaced than some others as well.

I'm not sure this is all that much harder than Herbarium though when one sticks to its inside corner in a dedicated way.

3 out of 5 stars Climbing With Mike

Darkness fell as I lead this climb. Pretty scary run-outs at the top and bottom, otherwise a quality climb.
